When you begin your work on a University of Washington Tacoma degree, you are entering a UW campus committed to community – a community of ideas, experiences, beliefs and, most importantly, of people.
We value diversity in all its forms. We believe that diversity leads to understanding and, ultimately, to equity. We believe that the pursuit of academic excellence is a path open to all, and we cannot wait to see what YOU will contribute to UW, to Tacoma and to the world.
"Being a UWT Husky means to feel well integrated in
the community, connected with professors, and to benefit from a more intimate academic and classroom experience."
VINCENT, HEALTHCARE LEADERSHIP
We are excited for you to join the Husky family
Choosing a college can be stressful, yet exciting, so be sure to allow yourself adequate time to research and evaluate your options. We hope that UW Tacoma will be your destination for a rewarding college experience.

Create your UW NetID
If you haven't already done so, create your UW NetID. Your NetID is required for orientation and registration. Instructions were sent to your email, but if you lost this email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
Configure your UW email
After creating your UW NetID, you'll be prompted to create a UW email inbox. Official messages from the University are sent only to your UW email address. Please do not forward your UW email to your personal email account. Refer to the UW Tacoma email policy for more information. It is essential that you receive and read your UW email regularly.
Pay the New Student Enrollment and Orientation Fee (NSEOF)
The NSEOF reserves your place at UW Tacoma and you will not be able to attend orientation or register for classes until it has been paid. Visit the NSEOF page to pay and for more information. Email email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
Freshmen: You must request a final high school transcript from the high school registrar before high school graduation (and before school closes for the summer). Your transcript must include your final quarter grades and confirmation of your graduation. You must submit your final transcripts to UW Tacoma by July 1. If not received by July 1, a hold may be placed on your registration.
Transfer students: You must submit updated transcripts for all college coursework at least two weeks prior to your first day of instruction.
Many students need to take a Math Placement Test and all Admitted Freshmen will receive information about completing the self-directed writing placement reflection. If you plan on taking any Spanish language courses at UW Tacoma, there is also a Spanish Placement Test.
Register for Classes
Freshmen & Running Start students must attend New Student Advising & Registration Days in June/July to meet with your academic advisor and register for classes. To sign up, visit: https://www.tacoma.uw.edu/uwtar
You will get a lot of valuable information, plus have a chance to familiarize yourself with campus just before classes start. More information about Orientation, including how to sign up for it, will be sent separately to you.
Get your student ID card
After you complete online orientation through Canvas, UW Tacoma will mail your Husky ID card to the address on record.
"The UW Tacoma students and professors - all of them-really want you to succeed. That's the kind of community you find here."
